How did Jesus spend the afternoon of the day of his resurrection? This fictional account attempts to recreate the conversation Jesus had with Cleopas and his companion on the walk to Emmaus. The dialogue follows the pattern of third-day passages in the Old Testament that describe a release from death. It begins, as Jesus did, with “Moses and all the prophets.” Join us on this walk. See if your heart does not “burn within” you as Christ’s suffering and third day glory are opened in the Old Testament, just as Jesus claimed!
